Empathy &is creating a podcast
Select a membership level
For the price of a coffee you can help me keep the podcast and website up and paid for in advance. For your generous donation I will thank you at least once a month on the podcast, and give you a big ole hug if we meet in person!
One of the things I love to talk about is my newfound adoration for all things Buddhism and Mindfulness. I believe it has helped my understanding of empathy considerably! With this level of donation you will receive a thank you on the podcast at least twice a month AND I will email you original meditations or mindfulness exercises I am using monthly.
Empathy is energy and action.
Impulse and imperative.
Biological necessity and sociological ideal.
But, over time, we've told ourselves that the impulse and energy within us is weak and that the sociological ideal is fantasy.
We started to believe the fictions of faction and power and control.
Unfortunately, due to that, we are more divided than ever.
We see it in our politics, our churches, our neighborhoods, and everywhere in between.
But it's not true. We are a part of a whole. We exist in conjunction with each other and need each other to thrive. Where language and culture differs, our internal energies rise to the task. We are a people that will succeed and thrive when we stand side by side. Empathy is the energy of connection, and we are in the business of cultivating it.
Empathy & is an independent public life and multimedia initiative that plans to stand against the tide of divisiveness.
We will pursue deep connections and conversation through a podcast, digital content, and live events.
We value vulnerability, spacious grace, and a shared love for positive social change.
